Charles Clement is the CEO and president of the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium in Juneau. A business management professional with 19 years of experience, Charles Clement has served on the board of numerous associations and currently serves as a director for the Healing Hand Foundation.

The Healing Hand Foundation, established in 2001, assists the Native and veteran populations of Alaska who require additional funding for medical expenses not covered by state health insurance or private insurance companies.

The foundation offers financial assistance to those seeking three categories of medical need:

1. Medical Goods. These items include supplies and equipment such as wheelchairs, eyeglasses, walkers, and dentures.

2. Pharmaceuticals. Some medications, such as specialized cancer or blood pressure drugs, are not covered by health insurance.

3. Patient Travel. If a referral for treatment requires a patient to travel to a different city, Healing Hand Foundation can cover escort travel expenses.

Individuals can support the Healing Hand Foundation through a basic donation, or they can choose to have a set contribution deducted from their payroll each period.
